Connection Credit Union (CCU) was founded in 1958 as the City of Bremerton Employees Credit Union. There were 32 original members, who invested $5 each, so the original assets totaled $160. We expanded by adding City of Port Orchard employees, Kitsap County employees and merged Kitcom credit union into our membership base. In 2006, we opened our field of membership to serve all of Kitsap County and determined that the name Kitsap County Public Employees Credit Union no longer reflected the full scope and diversity of our membership and we became Connection Credit Union.
For over 57 years, through 7 moves (Bremerton, Port Orchard, and Silverdale), 2 name changes, membership growth of over 10,000% and total assets now over 27 million, our credit union has continued to offer products and services to meet the changing needs of our membership. We maintain a community, family-oriented feel you expect from your local credit union. We still act like a credit union.
Our membership is open to anyone who lives, works, worships or attends school in Kitsap County.
We are looking forward to the future with resolve to continue to enhance products and services, value our loyal members and educate our field of membership about the credit union difference and our “people helping people” philosophy.
Connection Credit Union provides each member of our local cooperative family, including those underserved by larger institutions, with personalized financial and education services, ensuring all our members have the tools for financial success.
Connection Credit Union is Kitsap County’s premier choice for a truly local not-for-profit financial cooperative. Our community of financially literate and healthy members is built through superior service, technology, education and community involvement.
